Mein Auto: 2004 735i sport
Hi to all aussie beamer financial supporters like myself. I,m just south of Newcastle. Has anyone noticed how highly strung some of these guys can get on the forums?
I have been chasing info on nov 03 735i sport vanos and DISA systems.The yanks don't have a 735 but the 740 and 745 engine is the same.
Local dealers are charging $200 to read a fault code so I invested $81 and have purchased a DID/TIS system for the car so I can read/reset faults and change setup options on the car. Tis is the full tis which is the dealer repair manual. I will keep you all posted as to the real usefulness of the system.
see ya dirtdad

Mein Auto: 2006 320i
from Sydney

Hi there

Just joined from Sydney. We have a 2006 320i - family car not pet

Looking for some recommendations for quality mechanics that are not dealership prices if possible. We strayed from the dealer once but lived to regret it. Now up for a list of oil leak etc fixes with a $3K quote to fix - being on maternity leave this year this is not an options so would love recommendations

Hello Guys,

Been on the forum for a little while, just didn't know there was a seperate Oz section.

I currently drive an Mineral Grey F30 Luxury Line but (long story) I will soon be driving an Havana F30 Modern Line.

I'm in beautiful Lake Macquarie.

Be safe.

Mein Auto: 745Li
Another Gold Coast member here.

I'm driving a 2003 745Li. I do a lot of distance driving to Brizzy, Toowoomba, Sunshine Coast etc and the petrol consumption is very impressive for a big 4.4 V8. Would like to get it tuned up to see how economical I can make a beast like this....

Hi to all

Chris here with a 04 735i that I have finally got sorted after much heartache and wasted time trying to get any quality repairs from dealers or so called specialists. Have now found a guru in Newcastle. European car centre 0249622729. Excellent work and knowledge.
For fuel economy mentioned in previous post I have just driven 2200 km over the weekend with 4 adults and light luggage at cruising speeds of 120 to 150kmh (sorry but it felt good) and finished with fuel economy of 10l/100km . Fantastic! average speed for Newcastle to Swan hill vic 110kmh. The best economy I've gotten was Christmas holidays and police every 5km cruising on speed limit from Kempsey to Raymond terrace solo and got 6.6l/100km. Gotta love that.
The car is fitted with 20" rims and 45 profile tyres. If you are thinking of this it makes the ride and handling firmer BUT not really happy on back country roads.
